Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

Windows 10 64 bit on both PCs, Synergy Basic, connected to the network via ethernet, the computer I am using now is the server.

One PC may be named gaming PC, but in both screenshots of the client and server they both refer to themselves as Home-PC. Make sure that both instances of Synergy refer to themselves as unique names, most commonly their host names.
